This course is intended to rapidly familiarize QBMG/CBMG students (and others) with central themes in Molecular Genetics and in topics germane to quantitative and computational biology. It is held at the beginning of the fall term in order to facilitate rotation choices.
Each speaker is in charge of a 2-hour session consisting of a presentation/discussion. The first hour is a general introduction to their field. The second hour is an overview of some key questions in the field, and a description of their own research goals. Each session comes with an assigned paper to read. Each lecture (except the first) will end with a five-point quiz on the reading and the lecture. The mark is determined 50% from the quiz scores and 50% from the final exam.
Note: This is a two-credit QBMG/CBMG graduate topic course
